LAS VEGAS—The 2018 edition of the AVN Novelty Expo wrapped up a successful three-day run Friday, with buyers and attendees taking in all that exhibitors had to offer.

Nexus is making a renewed push into the U.S. market, and to that end showcased its REvo Slim prostate manager and the Ultra Si. The new Revo Slim prostate massager of Nexus perfect for beginners or for those who prefer a smaller product. Despite the smaller size than the other items, the Revo Slim will deliver intense, targeted stimulation of the prostate and perineum. The silicone shaft is smaller than the rest of the range and rotates in both directions. It gives 34 combinations of pleasure combined with two speeds. The rotating shaft delivers six stimulation modes; choose from slow, medium, fast, slow pulse, fast pulse and escalating. Ultra Si is a prostate massager that combines luxury silicone with firm polypropylene for enhanced dual density sensations. Using the effective shape of the Nexus Neo, this dual prostate and perineum massager is designed to fit comfortably within the male form. The shaft is shaped to massage the prostate internally whilst the stainless steel rollerball gently rolls against the perineum, delivering a licking sensation to the user. 

East Coast News displayed a number of brands the award-winning distributor carries, including items exclusive to ECN, such as the One Night Stand from Evolved, the entire Minx, Linx and Kinx line from ABS Holdings and Banana Golds condoms. The company also featured items from manufacturers who are new to the distributor, including Fleshlight, Shots America, Uvee and Electrastim. 

Rouge Garments manufactures handmade (in the U.K.) fetish products in a variety of styles, colors and materials. The company recently inked a joint sales and marketing agreement with Synergy Erotic, designed to help both companies increase brand recognition, access previously untapped markets and increase exposure and recognition of both companies at the distributor and retail level.

EighteenPlus exhibited their technology for use in pleasure products. The company is capable of providing manufacturers with the technology to produce the features of vibration, pulsation and more they want for their creations, and is currently looking to work with manufacturers, large and small.

In the Erosscia booth, reps displayed the Allure, a vibrator attachment that can be connected to a rechargeable toothbrush motor to help induce “toe-curling orgasms.” The Allure is designed for clitoral and G-spot stimulation.

Omega flex is a new cock ring designed to pleasure both partners simultaneously. Visitors to the booth learned about the features and functions from reps for the manufacturer, who was exhibiting at ANE for the first time.

The Thruster is a hand-held fucking machine. The powerful motor is housed in the handle, and the shaft is curved so it reaches all the right spots. It boasts 3 inches of thrust, as well as 10 speeds that can produce up to 140 strokes per minute.

Among international companies exhibiting at ANE was Liaoyong Baile, which manufactures an array of pleasure products designed for men and women. Included in their stock are vibrators, dildos and strokers.

The innovative hybrid fusion offers the benefits of water- and silicone-based lubricants, and is specifically designed of a woman’s body and most delicate areas. The lubricant is colorless, odorless and is compatible with most toys. It can be used for solo or couples play, as well as massage.

Shipper’s Advocate returned to ANE again this year to meet with potential clients about the series they can offer. The company—founded by Doug Carnes, a former corporate manager for UPS—can help manufacturers and more save money when it comes to shipping with UPS, FedEx and DHL.

Industry newcomer Happy Ending Glove showcased their first product, which can be used by men or women for masturbation, couples massage or stimulation during foreplay.
